between being alone and feelings of loneliness. these people said they felt, lonely, they are 64% likely to develop dementia according to this study? >> well, you know, you have to take a fine-tooth comb to this study. the study does say after looking at a couple thousand people in the netherlands over 65 who doesn't have full-blown dementia by any means when the study started, there is 64% higher risk for those who say i feel lonely at the beginning of the study, even if they're living with their families. the feeling of loneliness seemed to be associated with them later, years later, developing dementia. the trouble is, the participants in the study, the people who structured this, admit, we don't know whether these feelings were an early sign of dementia. so we don't know whether loneliness causes dementia or is early dementia defined by loneliness or feelings of loneliness. jon: right. people who are experiencing dementia might be embarrassed forgetting names and forgetting birthdays, and might limit social contact and feel lonely as a result. >> they might just feel lonely. they may

a pattern. and what is that pattern? anger, loneliness, social awkwardness, and, of course, access to guns. and the number that brian referenced, 1 out of 17, underscoring that, only one-third of those people get any kind of mental health problem. so here's the real concern. less than 10% of our health care dollars are spent on mental healthcare. and that means that the very wealthy can pay out of pocket. the very poor, there's a little bit of a safety net with medicaid. and everyone in between basically falls through that safety net. and that's what really has a lot of people concerned today. one person who we spoke with, a father who has battled the privacy issues that sometimes bar parents wefrom getting acce to their kids' records said tonight, and i'm going to quote him. he said, "it's easier to get an assault rifle today in the united states than it is to get adequate mental health care and that's wrong." and i think speaking on behalf of parents like you and me and american citizens, you cannot disagree with that statement, brian. >> powerful quote. nancy, we'll continue to cover th

common thing in high schools. so the shooter is a much bigger tip of the iceberg in loneliness and rejection and most people get past it and go on past high school, but those who suffer a particularly, treatment form of mental illness take every slight as a magnified catastrophe and it means something more serious to them than to the ordinary kid that gross out of it and doesn't enjoy it either. >> is there a threshold or an age if it's not dealt with at that time that this person will only get worse and it will fester and turn into something like this, a violent rampage? >> we know these mental disturbances that often characterize shooters begin in adolescence and they're very difficult to identify at that age, but if they manage to make it to their 20s it becomes a more fluid form that we are able to identify and that's one of the hardest things about this particular shooting and once someone gets beyond high school where we see them in a social setting it could be much harder. >> katherine newman, appreciate it. >> robert f. kennedy's daughter weighs in on the gun control de

's not think that this is a warning sign. it certainly is not. it's the isolation. it's a loneliness, the awkwardness, that means he doesn't have close people near him to help him get through the hard times. he doesn't have people to share his issues and problems with. he doesn't have others around him to help him get perspective of what he's feeling and thinking. >> then again we should say the brilliance has been identified by people who knew him. of course we don't have iq tests to compare this. to however, with regard to a motive, no sort of manifesto or note at this point the police say was found. what does that tell you if it ends up there was nothing left? >> most mass murderers do not leave notes behind. some have done that and some have sent letters to the press before their rampages, some have made videos explaining to the world what they were going to do so the world doesn't misunderstand them. and they don't get mistreated in the press. but for someone who's isolated like this, for someone who's quiet and reserved and shy, it would not be his style to wish to communicate
